2 more civits today.
I had a cougar take off with one of my cages today. This falls into the category of do as I say not as I do. I  always tell everyone to tie their trap to something and I usually do but not this one. First thing you think is, stolen. I  started back to the truck and then turned around and made a circle. Found it about 30 feet away.
Typing this one handed. I  think I  broke my thumb today. In ice water now but might put a crimp in my trapping. Man it is hurting. I could have killed the oriental who runs  the convenience store. I stopped and asked if he would put some ice in a cup and sell it to me. Nope!
Last set I checked in the dark and there was a civit at the cat set. I left a small trap so maybe something tomorrow.

Hey everybody, this guy is a booner. Maybe the biggest I ever caught before.
 A full 2 1/4 pounds.
Oh caught a bobcat too.

vicodine! ;)
 Long story but involves getting caught in one of my traps. Not exactly, a trap I am testing but not something I made. It has a lot of promise. Could be big news for the future but I can't go into it any further right now

Hope your thumb is better...was it broken or just bruised?  Or can you tell yet?

Hey Stinky ........ :chuckle:...........  what with you getting hurt all of the time?
I'm thinking you need a "Nurse" to tag along with you daily   :chuckle:
Keep your hands out of those traps  :o

Nice civet cat.  oh and the other one looks good too.

Just the tip so the last bone. Never went to the DR but it had a suspicious bend in it I don't remember before :chuckle: I gave it a little pull and it straightened out. Some choice words were said. Still awful sore but not hurting unless I bump it.
